Sashiko Mending // Wednesday, June 19, 6:30-8:30pm


Get your hands moving and learn the simple, beautiful skill of Sashiko stitching and mending. This form of stitching developed to prolong the lives of common utilitarian textiles through mending and patching, offering use and reuse of well-loved and worn garments and home textiles. We will explore this visible mending technique and the ways in which it can put new pizzaz into a favorite textile. Bring your own well-loved garment or stitch a swatch we provide - either way, you'll walk away with something that has a new life!

  • hand-dyed natural fiber fabrics for stitching and patching
